The first of our three part Saison series. Saison’s were traditionally brewed on farms in the French speaking region of Belgium for their workers. Ferme de La Ville or “City Farm 15” is brewed with Belgian Pilsner, malted wheat, and locally gathered honey. French Farmhouse yeast brings aromas of spice and earth. The body is light with complex flavors and a dry refreshing finish. 6.75%alc/vol 25 IBU’s

12oz pour of the ’Provision’ @ Baileys Taproom. Pours a murky amber with small white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of a sour-- maybe a little honey at the end. Flavor is a beautifully complex mush-mash of a lot of awesome stuff I can’t identify. My palate is pretty well mashed. Moderately carbonated, sour finish that mellows and lingers. I might have to come back tomorrow to try this again. Fantastic brew.

750ml bottle pours out a hazy golden topped with a bubbly head. When this was fresh it was more saison forward as time has passed and Brett took over. It is now more wild and sour. Nose is Brett tartness citrus lemon wood and perfume. Taste is more of the brett tartness citrus and wood. I like it more now then went it was fresh. I love how time and bugs change beer.

Something may be off with this bottle. Aroma is lemon pledge chemicals possibly acetone or some such thing but when mixed with the tart lemony flavors comes off really odd. Acrid and hard to drink but it smells ok.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle: Milky looking, orange & burnt golden body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of damp hay, tart lemons, lots of yogurt & some mild lacto notes. Mineral flavor with lots of spicy yeast, farmhouse dampness, lacto yeast, tart lemon, light apple, & some strange funky spices in the finish. Semi-creamy body that could use a little more carbonation.

Salmoniform (1252) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, honey, lemon, peppercorn, earthy, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice peppery astringentness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is an enjoyable brew.

"Definitely more wild than saison. Saision might be what this started as, but it’s got all kinds of cantillon cheesy funky sourness going on. Light in body, but not aroma or flavor. First foray into Block 15...hope it won’t be the last.

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a couple finger of fizzy white foam. Lots of dusty oak, vinous fruit and complexities of cedar, lime and citrus zest on the nose. Palate is a bit more murky than the nose leads you on to expect but still contains great flavors of grapefruit pith, complex rustic malts, cobwebs, bitter grass, rounded honey sweetness balances out the acidity level in the finish.

Bottle labeled "Ferme de la Ville Provision" thanks to nate321, thanks a lot Nate! Pours a nice golden with a lot of bubbles that provide an eternal white head that leave some lacing. Nose is of flowers, fruits and nice brett aromatics. Taste is fruity and really lightly tart and offers some nice fruity flavors along with some fresh cereals. Finish is dry and herbal. Carbonation was a bit intense for my liking, body light. This is a really good saison, yo. A nice surprise!

czar (6211) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks dawg. pours hazy pale yellow with a very nice creamy white head showing a good retention and lacing. dusty bretts, bright citrus and mint, flowers, honeyed maltiness if not honey and pale maltiness - hint of sweetness, quite fruity too, light acidity - mostly lactic, yet never linear, wood and herbs. lively carbonation, light body, relatively dry bretty, very chalky, lightly astringent and grassy-citrusy finish.
